Move to folder rule still shows desktop alert

I'm using Outlook 2003 sp3. I created a new subfolder under Inbox and then created a new rule to move email from a specific address to this folder. The rule works fine, but I'm still getting the desktop alert. Everywhere I've read, the desktop alert is only supposed to appear on Inbox messages. I'm getting the desktop alert on all folders. I don't wish to disable the alert completely, just for my subfolders.

What type of email account? When you use POP3 or client only rules with an exchange account, mail passes through the inbox, hence the alerts. You can disable alerts and create a last rule that applies to all mail and displays the alert. (Set all other rules to 'stop processing'.)

It is an exchange account. It looks like your solution is working. My sanity thanks you!
